The Dissemination and Utilization of Research and Development in Education--Two Strategies.
Clemens, Thomas D.
One major unit of the National Institute of Education (NIE), the Dissemination and Resources Group, is specifically charged with the responsibility of facilitating dissemination and use of the entire corps of knowledge about education: the outcomes of research and development supported not only by NIE but by other organizations and agencies as well, and information about promising and effective programs and practices in the real world of the school building and the classroom. The Dissemination and Resources Group is obligated to provide educators information about the full range of alternative solutions to their problems, rather than advocating one solution above others, and is committed to working through existing educational agencies and institutions whenever possible. The strategy of the group has three elements: first, maintaining and improving access to the complete knowledge base about education (primarily through operation of the Educational Resources Information Center--ERIC); second, building capacity for dissemination and utilization of knowledge throughout the education community (primarily through support of state departments of education); and third, supporting research, development, and evaluation needed to facilitate achievement of the other two missions.
